The Overnight

The Movie Snob says: Watch at your own risk!

The Overnight  (C).  This sex comedy probably deserves an NC-17 rating, in my humble opinion.  But despite the rampant bad behavior on (lurid) display throughout, I was kept somewhat curious about how everything would end up.  A couple with a young boy has just moved from Seattle to Los Angeles, and the husband meets another guy in the park with his son.  They hit it off, so the transplants go over to the Angelenos’ house for dinner.  Things gradually get weirder and weirder as the night goes on, as the Angelenos continually try to get the newcomers to loosen up more . . . and more . . . and more.  Jason Schwartzman (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) is well cast as the edgy, perhaps slightly creepy, host of the party.  Taylor Schilling (TV’s Orange Is the New Black) is cute and credible as the Seattle wife who is slightly more clued in to what is going on than her husband (Adam Scott, Friends With Kids).   I can’t really recommend such a vulgar and even obscene movie, but it was kind of interesting.  And only 80 minutes long to boot!
